The commitment of loyal fans is mostly a wonderful thing, especially if they spend all their time prettying up one of the best platformers ever. Going under the pseudonym SKJmin, the devoted admirer of Super Mario Bros. 3 has remade the entire game using the New Super Mario Bros. engine. Four gaming generations separate SMB3 on the NES and DS’s NSMB but since they’re both heavily guarded properties of Nintendo, SKJmin urges people not to download his patch unless they already own New Super Mario Bros. The ROM isn’t even included in the download to make sure no solicitors come a knocking!
A 15 minute trailer has been posted on YouTube showing SKJmin’s laborious but welcomed efforts and even though nothing can beat the retro beauty of SMB3, the updated sprites are still ever so pleasing to watch.
